I'm confused by this. If time-space is the medium via which all things occur - what is the 'control' in an experiment that would allow us to perceive it, and measure things like waves?
What is 'time-space' being compared to, in order to make the conclusion that it has 'waves'?
Could anyone point me to the actual research paper, or similar? I just would like to figure out if this makes sense.
If these are merely fluctuations in gravity, then it's assumption that it has any connection to time space at all. Not a proven thing, but rather mere data that could be explained in many ways (especially given gravity is still a mystery).
A lot of people, especially fans of relativity confuse math with model.
You could equally say that gravity is fluctuating because these events cause a breakdown in the CPU capacity of the virtual reality we all exist in, that it is some form of quantization, if this is the case. Or something like that. Not that I am claiming that.
You can think of space time as being the liquid in a swimming pool and us being an object in the centre of that pool - the wobble is created when someone dives in to the water at the side of the pool creating a compression wave. The compression of the water generates a [pressure] wave which is picked up by the person in the centre of the pool as a slight wobble that pushes them back and forth.
I understand that since gravitational waves are supposed to travel at the speed of light, a wobble in the first detector should have been followed 10ms later by the same wobble in the second detector which I think is what happened.
As I understand things, no triangulation can be done, so there is no real idea of where the objects are that caused the wobble - only an idea. It could be anything, also why only a few wobbles and not a continuous series of them for a long period of time. If the case is that they are only caused in certain conditions, then could this not be a different phenomena.
